Who says chicken fingers are just for kids? This family friendly chicken tender dinner can be enjoyed by all ages and is made with a gluten-free almond meal breading, Italian dried herbs for flavor, and served with spiralized potatoes for a healthy, fun spin on fries!
Gluten-Free Chicken Tender Dinner with Spiralized Potatoes
These chicken tenders will have you nostalgic from the first bite! The tenders are breaded in an almond meal mixture with dried Italian herbs for a flavor boost in every bite and a soft breading that’s nutritious and satisfying. While these tenders can totally be enjoyed on their own (for kids and adults!), I love making them into a whole dinner meal by adding a side.
We’re big marinara sauce dippers, so I served the tenders with a dollop of warmed marinara sauce. The sauce elevates this dish and gives it more flavor and interest. And instead of French fries, we’re having spiralized potatoes which are seasoned lightly with garlic powder, salt and pepper to tie all the flavors together and also give this meal a savory, starchy side.
Finish up with a side salad drizzled with some olive oil and red wine vinegar and you have a complete meal that’s meal prep friendly and will bring you back to your childhood days of chicken tender dinners!
